MODEL HISTORY & PRODUCTION
Introduced by Ferrari in 1968 at the Paris Salon offered a combination of enormous performance, in a stunning Pininfarina bodywork & is the last front-engine Ferrari GT prior to Fiat’s involvement. Therefore, it occupies a special place in the Marenello history. In recognition of the prancing horse’s stunning one-two-three victory at the 1967 Daytona 24 Hours, the press unofficially named it the “Daytona”. The early cars had “Plexiglass” headlight covers while this model retains the retracting headlamps providing for an effortless long bonnet & chiselled nose, with the rakish cabin set well back accentuating the front end.
The Daytona was a stop gap between the Ferrari’s outgoing 275 GTB/4 & their mid-engine 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer. Power was provided by the Colombo derived Tipo 251 V12 engine, which displaced 4.4 liters with four overhead camshafts & six Weber twin-choke carburetors. Output stood at about 350 brake horsepower, sufficient for a 0-100 km/h time of just 5.9 seconds & a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph) with a five speed manual transmission.
The Daytona was discontinued in 1973.
